The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band

The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band

Profile:
The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band was a bizarre combination of three well-heeled teenagers (brothers Dan and Shaun Harris and their school mate Michael Lloyd), and an even wealthier, thirty-something attorney called Bob Markley. Markley secured the group a recording deal with Reprise Records, where they made a series of strange records. While they scored no hits for the label, the band's most famous composition was 'Smell Of Incense'. which was covered to great effect by Southwest F. O. B., among others. The song was composed by Markley with a later addition to the band, guitarist Ron Morgan. As the composition reveals, Morgan was a highly talented (he later played with The Electric Prunes and a very early edition of Three Dog Night) and troubled individual. He died in 1989. Although the fate of the group svengali Bob Markley is, at present, unknown, Lloyd and the Harris brothers recently reunited to record some new WCPAEB music.
